Painfully Injured Other News
and Personal Mention.
One of the cleverest exhibitions of
athletic exercise ever seen In the city
was given last night In Athletic hall,
by the Scranton Athletic club before
a large and enthuslustlc audience. The
club, which is composed of stalwart
young men, have underwent a severe
and thorough course of training under
the direction of three young, though
highly efllclont trainers, Victor Noth,
who has lately completed a gymnasium
course In Philadelphia.
Difficult horizontal bar feats were
cleverly executed by Victor Noth.
John Roth, Chris Rose, and the old
war horse, ex-Captain Philip Wirth,
who has lost none of his old-time
cleverness. Berg and Keeser demon
strated fully their ability to do tumbl
ing and all sorts of fancy twisting
nnd bending, tying themselves in
knots and then untying themselves.
They were frequently applauded.
Double bar work by Albert Henno,
Philip Wirth, Chris Rose, John Itosh
and Victor Noth brought forth some
exceedingly hard feats.
Some very fine work was done by
Victor Noth on the parallel bars, and
It was done with astonishing grace
and ease. John Johns also did some
What proved of tho greatest interest
In the programme was a four round
sparring exhibition between Chris
Rose, the club's stalwart captain, and
their trainer, Victor Noth. It was a
very spirited set-to and the boxers
exhibited skill in dodge and parry
After the exhibition the hall was
cleared and dancing was. indulged in
until a late hour, music being fur
nished by Prof. Johnson.
South Mills Again Open.
Tho South mills of the Lackawanna
Iron and Steel company, which have
been idle for over ten months, re
sumed work yesterday afternoon at
1 o'clock, on two shifts, and last night
the heavens were illuminated by that
cheerful glow which has not oeen seen
for a good while, and the deep, dull
roar of the blowers nnd the sparks
of tho converton told the tale of rush
It Is expected that enough work
has been secured to keep the South
mill going nil winter, and that being
the case, the Christmas will be one
of joy and happiness.
A Romantic Wedding.
Mrs. Joseph Hnmm, of Plttston ave
nue, received a postal card yesterday
morning, bearing the following brief,

It will be noticed that Frances spoke
about being married and about "our
welfare," but failed to mention who
the happy man was. This wasn't
necessary. Her parents know very
well who the groom Is.
